Diana's Weekly Update 5-11-2020

posted May 11, 2020, 10:58 AM by Cynthia Friedman

An exciting project for kindergarten this week is designing and sewing sashes.

 

In math, we will begin a focus on money, specifically dimes and pennies this week. And a fun geometry activity of friendship shapes.

 

Our sounds-of-the-week will be th, ch and sh. Our chart will list th-words.

 

Our chapter book is Henry Huggins by Beverly Cleary.

 

Going forward, all schedules and assignments will be posted on Seesaw. There will not be any attachments to this email. We are now aligned with lower elementary, all neat and tidy.

 

We have two schedules for this week: the overview for meetings and assignments and the schedule for sewing the sashes. I am including these below on the next two pages. The schedules will also be in Seesaw in a multi-page post with other materials for Week 7.

 

Heads up, the sewing schedule in the Seesaw packet is an unedited draft. Please use final copy below on page.

 

Schedule  for  May 11-15 There is no expectation to print the attachments. Work on notebook paper or other medium.

Schedule for Sewing Your Sash

Fold a sheet of paper in half lengthwise, crease by pressing down on the fold with your pointer finger. Open and cut along the crease. Tape two short sides together to make one long piece.

 

Think about simple things, symbols and/or shapes that mean a lot to you. Choose 3 of them and draw them onto the long paper, leave some space between your drawings. Label each drawing.

 

 

Have a grownup cut the three things out of felt and pin them to your sash. Have them help you try on the sash to make sure all the things can be seen and aren’t hidden on your side or under the gold safety pin used to fasten the bottom together.

 

Sew 1 item to your sash using short (about a centimeter), uniform running stitches. (Bottom up till it stops, top down till it stops.) Remember to politely ask a grownup to knot your thread after you have threaded your needle.

 

 

Sew the second item to your sash. Sew around the edge of the piece using short (about a centimeter), uniform running stitches. (Bottom up till it stops, top down till it stops.) Remember to politely ask a grownup to knot your thread after you have threaded your needle. And thank them.

 

 

 

Sew the third item to your sash. Sew around the edge of the piece using short (about a centimeter), uniform running stitches. (Bottom up till it stops, top down till it stops.) Remember to politely ask a grownup to knot your thread after you have threaded your needle. And thank them.

 

 

Put on your sash, adjust so the dart is at the shoulder and sash crosses the body, under the arm to the other side. Overlap the two ends and hold together with the large, gold-colored safety pin.

 

Smile, take photo, post to Seesaw.
